Please Support CryptoArt Community-Centered Artist BruceTheGoose

[Want to help? Skip to the end of the post for details about the cryptoart benefit auction and related sales now taking place on Sunday December 20 at 2 pm Eastern Time.]

Yesterday morning many of us became aware that cryptoartist BruceTheGoose had experienced a major loss after his wallet was hacked.

So please don’t send donations to any ETH address you have for him until he announces a new one!

The loss was considerable:

So WTF is BruceTheGoose and Why Should I Care?

Glad you asked. BruceTheGoose is an OG cryptoartist and by that I don’t just mean he’s been creating and promoting his own art since the early days. He’s done a heck of a lot to build the scene from which all cryptoartists can now benefit.

For example, as he states in his CryptoArtNet profile (where you can find many links to his online/cryptoart presence):

Recently, and without actually intending to, I founded what I believe is the world’s first blockchain-native LGBTQ+ initiative. Initially the intention was simply to have a Pride parade in the Metaverse while the world is shut down, but it was met with so much encouragement and appreciation that it would’ve felt like a disservice to everyone involved had we not made something more out of it.

We’re still solidifying things, and figuring out the best method of supporting / promoting queer creators in the NFT space, as well as aiming to bring more traditional artists into the Metaverse; but at present we have a gallery in CV and an NFT minting contract that are accessible to any LGBTQ+ creators that want to utilize them. More info can be found at the Nifty Pride website. We’re also formulating tokenomics and HODL’ing incentives for our native token, $FAB (Fabulous Funds).

Among other things, BruceTheGoose is also:

Someone who’s been supportive of a wide range of projects, people and initiatives including Untitled, the “first generalized NFT focused hackathon”. He also gave advice and information to many of the projects which resulted;

The first independent artist to create artwork for Wildcards, a cryptoart organization raising funds for conservation;

Possibly the first ordained minister offering Metaverse wedding ceremonies. While this was initially another way of supporting LGBTQ+ individuals in the space, his services are open to anyone unable to have a traditional wedding as the pandemic continues;

Currently building NFThub as a free resource for the larger NFT community.

Not surprisingly, his fellow cryptoartists responded strongly to his loss including Rogan X who is organizing a benefit cryptoart auction for Wednesday, December 16:

screengrab of tweet

Check the comments from the above tweet for responses from many of the 20 artists who have already pledged or donated pieces for the auction.

The response has been strong and we’re just getting started:

BruceTheGoose soon endorsed the effort and thanked all those giving their support:

screenshot of tweet

Information About the Benefit

Details are still being solidified but here’s what we know.

The benefit auction has been rescheduled for Sunday, December 20th, 2 pm Eastern Time and will take place at danil pan‘s Art Gallery Auction House on Telegram.

Rogan X pledges to continue the auction until BruceTheGoose’s losses are restored or Rogan X collapses!

If you’d like to donate art, please send it to roganx.eth:
0x2Ffa60A14Dd2eb156d64390D545B819e40fC87F2

After bids for art are accepted, there may be a delay in receipt. Rogan X will be waiting for low gwei to reduce TXN costs.

Contact Rogan X directly with questions about the auction.

Breaking News: Mintable is offering support:

And KnownOrigin is also participating:

More updates to follow. This is even bigger than an auction!

I’ll be donating art. Will you?

CryptoArt News: Media Appearances by CryptoArtNet Members

This edition of CryptoArt News focuses on recent coverage of CryptoArtNet members mostly from the last two months. I have to say I was a bit surprised to see that some of the main media outlets covering cryptoartists predominantly featured CryptoArtNet members during this time. We’re still less than 300 members but we punch way above our weight!

This is a very stripped down version with links to member listings and to the articles or video sources. Subsections are in no particular order. There’s so much here I just cut and pasted and left it at that.

MIAMI ART WEEK:

Art Basel has been a beacon for the Miami Art Scene since 2002. Since its onset, Miami and the Beaches have embraced the energy of the global art community. Numerous satellite shows, festivals, performances, gallery events and street art have exponentially spawned from this yearly convention in true Miami magical form.

CryptoArtNet Updates: New NFT Art Releases, CryptoArtists on Twitter

women in rootlike forest with abstract root pattern on upper body

Art by Stefan Keller aka KELLEPICS from Pixabay

I have a couple of updates at CryptoArtNet to announce. In particular, we now have a stream of new NFT art releases to which members can post. Hopefully this feature will get more attention on members’ art for sale.

New NFT Art Releases

All members can now post one announcement a day of new cryptoart releases or of related events.

It looks pretty cool already. I want to pull the pinned tweet once people know what’s up so there’s art at the beginning of the feed.

One of the nice things about New NFT Art Releases is that it gives one an easy way to keep up with new art across platforms without all the noise of Twitter. I do love Twitter but it makes it hard to keep up with art sometimes.

However, I want to see if I can set up a Twitter feed for the posts. I think I can also set up social media sharing links. So there’s more to come.

The plugin I’m using is a social network plugin from Peepso. It has a lot of other capabilities but I’ve hesitated to launch a social network given that we have things like Twitter and Discord.

You can find more of the features of Peepso here. I’ve got all the add-ons, from a previous project that imploded, and you can find additional features under the Plugins menu or by clicking on screen navigation elements.

Here are some questions I have for you along with contact points and markup tips. If you want something, tell me about it!

I’d be happy to hear from non-members, including collectors, about any features that would be helpful such as non-member accounts for commenting as well as such features as direct messaging, etc.

CryptoArtists on Twitter

I also added a stream from the CryptoArtNet Artists list on Twitter.

Basically anytime anybody completes an Artist Listing on CryptoArtNet I add their Twitter account to the list. It is a good place to find new art but it has a lot of other stuff as well.

William M. Peaster $WHALE Grant

So CryptoArtNet and I received a quite generous William M. Peaster $WHALE Grant!

I’m writing a separate post about how that changes the game in important ways for CryptoArtNet and myself and will link when that’s done.

Till then, check out William’s Twitter account and his awesome newsletter DeFi Arts Intelligencer.

Thanks William!

CryptoArtists from Argentina on CryptoArtNet

I’ve been wanting to highlight the artists on CryptoArtNet from Argentina. Now seems like a great time given the CryptoArg collective drop currently available on Nifty Gateway. You can follow the collective on Twitter and on Instagram.

Some but not all of these artists are on CryptoArtNet. And not all Argentine cryptoartists on the site note their location or country of origin as Argentina. But I guess that fits a group with a show called CAOS/CHAOS.

Here are thirteen Argentine cryptoartists that can be found on CryptoArtNet with notes from CryptoArtNet’s Artist Listings!

Beckermatic

Argentinean artist. Peronist: give me Pope Francis, Perón, Evita, Néstor, Cristina, Los Palmeras, and a good asado among friends, and I’ll turn the world into a Paradise.

I love politics as much as science, cats, art, and a good book. If I were to choose between a Lambo and a Citroën 2CV, I’ll pick the 2CV.

Assorted techniques and styles. Eccentric, maybe crazy.

Twitter: CryptoArtistX

Crypt0 Baby

Joaquina Salgado aka ‘Crypt0 Baby’ is a new media artist based in Buenos Aires specialized in 3D immersive experiences, XR/VR and live visuals. Her queer activism is reflected in her artwork. The color palettes are a key element of her work that connect us with galaxies of emotional states.

Twitter: @crypt0_baby

Fakito

I am a 19 year old artist from Buenos Aires, Argentina. I specialise in 3D Art. You can find my work up on SuperRare and Rarible!

Twitter: fakito__

Frenetik Void

As digital technologies change the definition of what it means to be human, the relationship between physical presence, virtual identity and digital corporeality becomes more diffuse. The work of Frenetik Void unfolds in a science-fiction environment, a post-human universe inhabited by mutating beings, hybrids in which limits are vanished.

Twitter: @frenetikvoid

gcrll

Digital artist and programmer working in animations, images and other media.

Twitter: @gcorallo

Julian Brangold

By adopting a multi-disciplinary approach that includes painting, computer programming, 3D modelling, video intallations, collage, tattooing and a myriad of digital mediums, his conceptual research explores a wide variety of latent contemporary subjects. Using art as an investigatory discipline to explore themes like technology, artificial intelligence and the online self, Brangold explores mediums that transcend conventionalism through their various combinations and deconstructions.

His works seek to make us wonder what our place is within a world of constant technological advancement and new natural landscapes, losing the division between the digital and the human.

Twitter: @julianbrangold

Kazwes

My main focus is playing with recurring elements using them as symbols, as well as experimenting with the boundaries with figuration and abstraction. As I produce art as well as do research in this field, I go back and forth between creation and social research of the art world, taking in account the symbolic, social and political aspects of artistic expression.

Twitter: @kazwes2

k0ch

ALGORITHMIC ARTIST LOST IN A RECURSIVE LOOP. His work combines the beauty of nature with the artificial decay of big cities, represented by organic algorithms that grow in the middle of concrete. He is inspired by internet culture, dystopian/sci-fi films, old videogames, punk, mathematics and generative art.

Twitter: @_k0ch

Nad Art

Artist. Dancer, mixed media and technological experiments in Corvus Project.

Twitter: @Nadart12

Norma Xelda Jara

I am a freelance graphic designer. I live in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Creativity and art has always been in my identity. I studied third level drawing since 1992 and technology was always present in my profession.

In 2016, by chance I joined the Dada community where I made 1800 digital drawings and introduced myself to digital art.

In June 2019 I met two amazing art stores like MakersPlace and Knownorigin and I inserted myself by tokenizing my works in cryptoart.

Today I belong to a community of decentralized and empowered artists who are permanently searching for new paths, including technology as a form of expression and search for identity.

okytomo

Hello, my name is Octavio, I am a visual artist from Argentina.

I am in the last year of Sound and Image Design at the University of Buenos Aires. In the university I always choose the most avant-garde professorship’s, the ones that were encouraged to new things. We tried new technologies.

My career was always a constant try and I think that nowadays, all that practice, all those test, are defining my style. Something that I found…
and I want to do.

Souline Art

Argentine artist currently residing in Spain. World traveler. Through my works I try to reflect how labyrinthine reality can be. Combining different techniques, styles and registers, I recreate the complexity of the perspectives that surround us. The lines prevail in my works, through which I seek to play interactively with my works to unite them and create more complex structures and symbolisms.

Tierras Raras

Tierras Raras explore the mix between oil painting and digital art, based on colors and textures, to create different scenes and characters that inhabit them. Most of her scenes come from old family photos, which she transform, and turn into something else. “Tierras Raras” is the name, in Spanish, given to oxides that can rarely be found in their pure form, just like her characters.

CryptoArtists of Color at CryptoArtNet

We continue our Identity Series with CryptoArtists of Color at CryptoArtNet. Daïm Aggott-Hönsch and oculardelusion each suggested the topic separately which I thought was a great idea!

The shortness of the list surprised me but I hope that will change. I would have expected the concept to include more people but I reached out with a group email and maybe some folks missed it. It also may be a more culturally specific term rather than one used around the world. I really don’t know!

If you are listed on CryptoArtNet and identify as an artist of color, however you define that catchall term for race/ethnicity/identity, please contact me so I can add you to this post: clyde(at)cryptoartnet(dot)com

If you’d like to create a listing and be included, please start here.

This post is a follow-up to Women of CryptoArtNet, which will eventually have a Part 2, and will in turn be followed by LGBTQ CryptoArtists and CryptoArtists 50 and Over.

CryptoArtists of Color (Alphabetical with notes from Artists’ Listings)

abstract imageCabo

I love various arts of abstract, creative, innovative, inspirational, and motivational themes.

My heart is in poetry and writings as well. Soon I will share some of my works in that regard.

Being a part of the CryptoArtNet community is exciting and I’m very much looking forward to the growth of this platform.

This is a more than an opportunity of displaying art. It is a freedom of expression, an avenue that will provide art lovers a look into the creations of creative minds, emotions, and outlooks.

So come often, share, and enjoy the journey of digital art on the blockchain. After all, it’s more than a moment, it’s the future of immutable craft.

Osinachiman holding a lamb in arms

Aesthetically and procedurally, Osinachi’s work explores visible existence as protest. The artist is interested in depicting and reimagining how individuals and collectives engage in advocacy for freedom of identity by thwarting societal expectations. This could be through the things they wear, the paraphernalia they adorn themselves with, or simply by being and existing in a form (albeit harmless) that the society frowns upon.

Through his work, Osinachi indirectly calls out the society to acknowledge its shame and failures. Drawing from his experiences as an Igbo person, he creates figurative portraits that feature subjects often posing in bold and assertive positions and, whether they are nude or dressed in African textile prints, they initiate conversations that most people are often hesitant to have around identity – sexual, gender, cultural and otherwise.

From a genuinely happy and successful single mother to a man in a dress, Osinachi’s subjects appear without eyes, prompting the viewer to shut their own eyes against physical appearances when judging an individual’s essence and worth. Sometimes, the artist takes a cue from ‘80s black-and-white portrait photographs, which he grew up seeing in homes across South-East Nigeria.

CryptoArt News: Women of CryptoArtNet

Recent discussions on CryptoArt Twitter point to the need to support a stronger presence of women in cryptoart. While the cryptoart scene seems more welcoming to women overall than many tech domains, women make up only 20% of CryptoArtNet listings.

Hopefully more discussion and action are ahead. For my part, highlighting the women who have listings at CryptoArtNet seemed like a good place to start. There is some ambiguity around gender in some cases so I may be adding or even subtracting from this list in the near future. If I get one wrong, let me know!

Let me also say that CryptoArtNet is very supportive of the presence of all genders and gender combinations. Binaries can be useful but ultimately limit human identity and artmaking in sometimes brutal fashion.

The cryptoart scene has generally been a very positive and welcoming space. Part of what’s great about it is its international makeup. I’ve been very glad that artists choosing to create listings on CryptoArtNet offer a strong representation of many different parts of the world.

Indrani is a self-taught artist inspired by the shapes, colors and form of natural objects. She is especially moved by the engaging simplicity of illustrations created for children and how Vermeer’s treatment of light can bring out the ethereal beauty of a simple moment in time.

She was elected for juried exhibition, lightandspace, which was impactful in focusing her research efforts into a variety of new methods and techniques. She has entered a more experimental phase with digitized works and the use of digital tools paralleling her discovery of blockchain technology which she sees as an open door to a whole new world of possibilities.

Abstract image hiding woman's face by Anna Stoyanova-Spontaneart at CryptoArtNetAnna Stoyanova/Spontaneart

Traditional and digital painter. I am working in different styles and techniques, and I am mixing them digitally….

With the event of the internet and the new technological progress, I discovered a new way to express my creativity and started to paint digitally. At this moment I am creating daily digital art, very personalized, because, usually I love to create with custom brushes that were painted or designed in separated applications. Mostly I am remixing my photos of my traditional art in different variants and techniques and I am experimenting new ways to create. Some of my fans called my transformations of old art in new “Recycled art”.

portrait of woman's head and neck, lying back, in dark colors by Kitty Bast on CryptoArtNetKitty Bast

Kitty Bast creates characters that reappear and reside in a place where things are not as they should be. They each have a name and are often found in scenes of ambiguity for the viewer to unravel. Each piece of work is like a window with a view into the characters world.

I am a photographer and digital artist based in Galicia, Spain. I’m in love with spaces without people or in which people are only part of the landscape. I like the long exposure, I can spend hours trying to get the perfect picture. Then the editing part will begin, until I get what I am looking for, what I felt when I decided to photograph that space. I use Photoshop, After effects and Premiere to editing a to animate my images.

Sparrow – Respect!

Sparrow, who may well be the most respected artist in the cryptoart game, dropped some knowledge in a discussion organized by the Blockchain Game Alliance on women in the blockchain industry.

“Making the space welcoming – to everyone – will mean we include everyone. And really, that is the path to wider adoption.”

“In art, in gaming, in blockchain, every one of us can make a difference by actively building a space where people feel like they belong & can contribute.”

She also appeared in a two part episode of Josie Bellini’s Behind the Art with Josie:

Behind the Art with Josie – Sparrow – Part 1 and Part 2

Matt Kane on Community

Matt Kane has made multiple recent appearances in cryptoart and NFT news media including an interview in NIFTIES with a powerful perspective on the potential of the cryptoart community:

“This community is a grand experiment with limitless potential to inspire and influence the outside world. The reality is that much of the world is sick right now and has been for some time; long before this virus. If we can show the world what a healthy and sustainable community looks like, it will go a long way toward mainstream adoption. People prefer to be healthy, want to be loved, want to be connected to inspiring people. We can be those people. We can become the model that makes the old model obsolete.”

Matt also appeared on Behind the Art with Josie Bellini:
